Steve the timing belt has to come off to change the head gasket. The head will need skimming to make it flat.I would imagine if you took it to a garage it would be £300 is ,as the ceapest gasket I've found is £69. To do it your self with no hold ups just changing the gasket would take around a day ,but then you have to add time on to get the head skimmed.If you go ahead and have it done then have the cam belt and water pump done as well as it may have caused damage to the seals and bearings in the water pump due to it freezing.
